Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Protect the Elderly in San Jose

Lawyers with more than 100 years of combined experience are on your side

Whether the abuse is physical, mental or financial, the victim is often embarrassed or confused about the situation, and doesn’t report it to friends or family. The attorneys at Needham Kepner & Fish LLP have long experience in helping elderly clients in the Bay Area who have been abused at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We build a solid case against whoever is abusing your parent, grandparent or other loved one.

Signs of abuse at San Jose, Sacramento and San Francisco nursing homes

If you suspect that your loved has been abused, contact experienced elder abuse lawyers as soon as possible. Elder abuse laws in California prohibit any form of physical, psychological or financial harm against patients in senior care facilities. If you notice any of the following signs of elder abuse, get legal help immediately:

  • Bed sores
  • Unexplained bruises or cuts
  • Infections
  • Injuries from falls
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Emotional volatility
  • Withdrawal from social interaction
  • Instances of wandering from the facility
  • Rapid weight loss or gain
  • Reluctance to speak when staff members are within earshot
  • Unexplained or unexpected death of another resident
  • Poor hygiene
  • Unexplained changes in behavior

Neglect is considered abuse under the California Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act. So is financial abuse, which can be as simple as a hospital staff member who steals toiletries or as complicated as investment fraud.
